  2. QUESTION:
    What is this sharp pain on the lower right part of my chest in between my breast bone and my ribs?
    I have this sharp pain right under the right part of my chest and above the ribs. It hurts to breathe and yawn and lay down. When I sit and other things that don't include laying down it doesn't hurt as much but it still hurts. There is no swelling or a bump. I can press on it in one spot and that's where the pain is coming from. No where else. What is it?

      Thats really bad for you.
      It would be better, if you ask a doctor.
      Best wishes!

  3. QUESTION:

    this hasn't been the first time i have had this although it was never quite like this. ever since last night i have randomly started getting very bad pain just under the left side on my ribs. it hurts to breathe and i need to lie down until it passes. does anyone know what it could be?

      I used to have that, and it turns out it was gas, produced from my intolerance to lactose. Also, if you're allergic to gluten, wheat, or even have IBS,

      There are a few things it could be,Kidney or bladder infections, are common. Ive had both and my symptoms were the same. Make sure that when you have to go to the bathroom, you do at that very minute. Holding it in can cause infections. Also, my lab teacher once told me she had to get her bladder removed because she was having sharp pains under her ribs. Something MAY be wrong with your bladder. Im not a doctor, but just trying to help with past experiences. Hope you feel better soon!

      However, the pain could be from something else, so I would highly recommend going to visit your doctor. It's better to be safe than sorry.
